South Shore Line to Offer Veterans & Active Duty Military Personnel Free Transportation November 10 Through 12, 2017

South-Shore-Line-Veterans-Weekend-2017To show our gratitude, all veterans are invited to ride the South Shore Line for free on Veterans Day November 10 and through the weekend of November 11-12, 2017.

“We are honored to offer veterans and active duty military personnel (including reservists) free rides on the South Shore Line,” commented Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation at the SSL. “By welcoming them on the train for free, we hope to convey our gratitude for all they have done for our nation. It’s our way of thanking veterans for all they’ve done to keep our country safe.”

As our train personnel walk through the train, please let them know that you are a veteran or active military personnel, and we will provide you a ride at no charge. No identification will be required.

On Veterans Day (Friday Nov. 10), trains will follow the regular weekday train schedule.

Up to three children under 14 years of age may ride free with each veteran on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains.

Throughout the year, the SSL introduces different campaigns and opportunities for free rides. The rail line recently expanded their Kids Ride Free policy, allowing a maximum of three children under 14 years of age to ride free with each paying parent or guardian on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains.

The South Shore Line is a commuter rail line operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD) between Millennium Station in downtown Chicago and the South Bend International Airport in South Bend, Indiana.
